    05. 2nd vote for the 2017 project - which Field style

    Dear all,

    Since the field watch concept won with a landslide victory over the diver concept, we can proceed to the 2nd vote.
    PLEASE NOTE: only vote if you first register for the project! And only register if you are truly interested in following until completion! Details are in the FAQ and registration post.

    The 2nd vote is to determine the general style of the field watch. We propose 2 base styles to choose between. It is not the idea that we will create a carbon copy homage, rather these are both interesting, charming and characterful historical starting points. Much like the Japanese pilot and the classic style of the 2016 project were unique (and I not so humbly think: very successful) re-interpretations of historical examples. The idea is to make a vintage-inspired fieldish design with lots of personality.

    Design elements like text, dial colour etc are for later discussion.

    Unless we get close to 200 participants, we can probably only make 1 dial style, and since the core team finds both styles attractive, we hope that even if your fave style doesn’t get elected, the other style is still enticing enough !

    These are the 2 field styles to choose from:

    1. Shanghai Officer Watch:
    The inspiration comes from a rare and rather unique looking officer watch that was in fact a variant of the better known Shanghai diver. Notice the particular, big applied hour markers. It could look good in darker dial colours as well. We find this watch a very interesting and promising starting point for our 2017 project.
    Not my own picture:



    2. West End watch
    The classic West End watches were worn everywhere from Beijing to London, and they even had a “Silk Road” model to celebrate that fact. Hence this stunning militarish styled vintage as an inspiration. Notice the now rare dial design (though there were a few others in that style, for example made by Oris), and the colour scheme with the gilt accents and steel applied markers. We also think this is a very attractive starting point for our 2017 project.
    My own picture (bought the watch specifically as a project idea):



    Hence, please vote between:
    1. Shanghai Officer Watch
    2. West End Watch
    Please, also indicate (to better estimate the number of participants who will stay):
    2nd choice is still acceptable for me: Y/N

    Voting open until 17 October.
